The superstar received a hard tackle from teammate Kiko Casilla during a Real Madrid training session. Luckily, CR7 says the injury is not bad enough to keep him out of the upcoming historical finals.
Ronaldo was taken off training for medical check-up on the thigh knock Tuesday.
The Portuguese star spoke with the media: “I had a problem in training, a bocadillo [big bruise] as they say in Spain. But I’ll be fine tomorrow or the day after.
“I’m calm, we’re training well. I’m sure we’ll be prepared. We’re fine, we’re on the right track. We ended the League well. We want to win on Saturday to define the season.”
Further questions were asked on Ronaldo’s expectations from Atletico Madrid as well as his possibility of breaking own record for goals in one tournament, currently 17.
“Records are a natural consequence. It would be nice to equal or surpass it but they come naturally, I’m not obsessed. The most important thing is to win. The record is still mine whether I score or not. It’s not important. I’d love to score, but if not then someone else and we win the Champions League,” he insisted.
“The season started regularly and got better and better and ended excellently. There was a problem, but it happens after 4,000 minutes. I ended in good condition. I feel good, ready, and I’ll be at my best level on Saturday.”
